AWS is a hot skill right now, but getting a job (or even just building your own personal projects) requires going beyond basic concepts and services. This project-based course will teach you to apply those concepts and work with multiple services together to build something real that you can show off to potential employers.

What you'll learn

  • Learn how to design and build a simple web application from scratch using AWS services such as Amplify, Lambda, IAM, API Gateway, and DynamoDB
  • Understand why and where to use each AWS service and how to integrate them to create a fully-functional math web application
  • Gain practical experience in applying AWS concepts and working with multiple services together
  • Develop a portfolio project demonstrating your ability to design and build a web application using AWS services, which can be shared with friends, family, and potential employers
  • Gain insight into how to navigate the complexities of AWS and effectively combine various services to create real-world applications
  • Enhance your skills in deploying and managing web applications on AWS, contributing to your proficiency in cloud computing and boosting your career prospects

Why Is This AWS Web App Project Awesome?

Because it's the perfect opportunity for you to advance your skills with Amazon Web Services (AWS)!

When you’re first learning AWS it’s sometimes hard to know how to put all the pieces together—how to use the various services to create an actual application that you could use in the real world.

This project helps solve that!

We’ll be designing and building a simple web application from scratch. We’ll pick five different services — Amplify, Lambda, IAM, API Gateway and DynamoDB — and talk about why you should use them, where to use them, and how to get them to work with each other.

As we go, we’ll build out each of the services, resulting in a fully-functional math web application.

When you’re done you’ll have something you can share with friends, family, and potential employers!

Wait... What's a Project?

One of the most common things we hear from students is: "I want to build more projects!"

We love hearing that, because building projects is really the best way to learn. And unique, challenging projects can really make your portfolio stand out for potential employers.

But just feel so good when you actually build something real!

That's why we've created ZTM Projects. A collection of comprehensive portfolio and practice projects that you can use to advance your knowledge, learn new skills, build your portfolio, and sometimes even just have fun!
